Trunk divider (if so equipped)

The trunk divider does not contain any

The trunk divider does not contain any secure locking mechanisms so it should not be used as a secure storage for valuables.

The trunk divider allows for the creation of a hidden storage compartment in the trunk or when lowered, a temporary storage surface for wet items.

The trunk divider can be accessed through the lowering of the rear seats or through the trunk.
